The above video isn’t a tutorial on how to apply a tung oil finish. It’s a satisfying woodworking video that shows the beautiful process of coating a freshly made 18th century jointer plane with a nice tung oil finish. I just wanted to keep y’all up tonight with thoughts of the Tung oil falling into the dry wood pores of this beautiful beech jointer plane.
I also wanted to announce that I just finished filming a DVD with Bill Anderson on how to build this traditional 18th century jointer plane from scratch, with traditional hand tools. Roy Underhill invited us to film it in his Woodwright’s School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. This plane is modeled after one of Roy’s precious hand planes! Click here to buy the video.

Great article.. I just used tung oil on my hard maple workbench. It turned out great. I would love to win the glue up clamps, but the shaker candle stand video would also be a valuable addition to my shop. I would wear any of the t-shirts with great pride. Thanks from Michigan.
